Red Digital Cinema is now offering the Scarlet-W 5K camera to its Dragon line, which includes the Red Raven and Weapon.
The Scarlet-W features a Red Dragon sensor, interchangeable lens mounts, simultaneous recording in RedCode RAW and Apple ProRes formats, an intelligent OLPF system and in-camera 3D-LUT outputs.
Scarlet-W captures 5K at 60fps, 4K at 150fps or 2K at 300fps with Redcode RAW. Its wide dynamic range produces cinema-quality images with rich natural color. Scarlet-W also offers an upgrade path to Weapon and uses the DSMC2 line of accessories — compatible with both Red Raven and Weapon cameras — giving shooters the option to move between camera systems without having to purchase all new gear.
Scarlet-W comes on the heels of the recent 4.5K Red Raven, which is Red’s most compact and lightweight camera. It is priced at $5,950 for the Brain only, with full packages starting at $9,750.
If you have placed a Red Raven order, no worries, the company says you can easily change to a pre-order. Scarlet-W is estimated to begin shipping in February 2016, and deposits are now being accepted.
